GDC Technology Achieves DCI Compliance for its SA-2100 and SX-2001 Family of Digital Cinema Servers
Hong Kong (January 6, 2012) – GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world-leading digital cinema solution provider, is pleased to announce today that it has achieved DCI compliance for its SA-2100 and SX-2001 family of digital cinema servers. Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (“DCI”) is a joint venture of Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal, and Warner Bros. Studios and its primary purpose is to establish and document voluntary specifications for an open architecture for digital cinema that ensures a uniform and high level of technical performance, reliability and quality control.
GDC Tech certification was published on the DCI website (www.dcimovies.com/compliance) on December 15, 2011, upon successful completion of the Compliance Test Plan (“CTP”) conducted by CineCert, LLC, the only organization in North America licensed by DCI to administer the CTP. There is no need to upgrade the hardware of the SA-2100 and SX-2001 family of servers to satisfy DCI Cinema Systems Specification, Version 1.2; the GDC Tech family of servers will be able to upgrade my software to ensure DCI compliance.
“Obtaining DCI compliance for our SA-2100 and SX-2001 family of servers exemplifies GDC Tech’s belief in ensuring our customers the availability of a simple upgrade path to continue meeting the industrial digital cinema standard,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, and CEO of GDC Tech. “With 12 years of experience in digital cinema servers and over 14,000 digital cinema servers installed worldwide, GDC Tech has always protected its customers’ investment in digital cinema servers. In the last 12 years of evolving digital cinema requirements, GDC Tech was the first to provide an upgrade path to meet MXF MPEG2, the then de facto standard of digital cinema prior to DCI specification; and years later the first to provide an upgrade path to DCI JPEG2000 servers. And GDC Tech is now safeguarding our customers’ investment again by providing an upgrade to GDC Tech family of servers to meet DCI Specification, Version 1.2.”
